KNOWLEDGE CONSOLIDATION WEBINAR SERIES
05 July 2022 to
06 July 2022
Srijana Joshi Rijal & Sunayana Basnet
Abstract submission Concept note
The second episode of the webinar series will provide a platform to share policies, experiences, emerging issues, collaborative opportunities, research findings, new ideas and technologies, technical guidelines, and approaches to biodiversity conservation and protected area management, transboundary collaboration, and community conservation.
Biodiversity in the Far Eastern Himalaya Landscape (FEHL) is threatened by land-use change, habitat fragmentation, climate change, biological invasions, poaching and wildlife trade, excessive exploitation of forest products, and lack of transparency in the trade of biological products. The transboundary nature of the landscape adds to the complexity and challenges for biodiversity conservation.
Community participation in biodiversity conservation is extremely important in the FEHL as many areas outside the Protected Area (PA) network are rich in biodiversity, and various ethnic groups have rich customary institutions and traditional knowledge related to biodiversity and stewardship.
Driven by global efforts for strengthened conservation, the national policies, legal frameworks, and institutions governing biodiversity conservation in China, India, and Myanmar have undergone drastic changes in the past decade. At the same time, PA management and wildlife conservation have been transformed by new technologies and approaches such as geospatial technologies, artificial intelligence, camera trapping as well as citizen engagement in patrolling, monitoring, surveys, information processing, and public outreach.
We invite abstracts for the second webinar on 5-6 July 2022. Selected abstracts will be published in a compendium of abstracts, and the authors will be asked to present their work during the webinar.
The length of each abstract must not exceed 500 words
